It is important to understand how it is to be used. The AWPA U1 Standard covers a variety of Use Classes (UCx). Some, e.g., UC2, allow a material like Strandguard, which is intended for sheltered locations like a damp sill plate to such classes as the UC5x series which allow use in brackish or salt water and adjacent to the mud line, for which Strandguard will not be appropriate.

Well, i remember when i built my backyard deck applying a treatment by JASCO(?) which was intended to provide a similar effect on the PT wood.
The other option is to specify Strandguard (or equiv) which is a PT manufactured LSL by TrusJoist/iLevel/Weyerhauser, intended for sill plate usage. Good Luck.
